. i think the president and his family have already -- there they go. president obama and michelle obama boarding the plane taking off for portsmouth, new hampshire where of course president obama will hit the campaign trail. that is where dan lothian is already waiting for the president to arrive. so i'm sure the white house has already put out a statement on this jobs report. what's it saying? >> this is not the kind of numbers that would really put wind in the sails of the president as he bounces out of the democratic national convention. i've heard from two officials who tell me the president will in fact address the jobs numbers during his first stop here post the dnc convention here in new hampshire. so he will be addressing those job numbers. we'll be listening for what he has to say. we heard from the president's economic adviser who said in a statement in part, quote, while there is more work, there remains to be done, today's employment report provides further evidence that the u.s. economy is continuing to recover from the worst downturn since the great depression going
had a great speech and the night before, michelle obama. if you were listening what i call a fact challenged listener, switching between honey boo-boo and barack obama gee, that was a great speech. it was like a helium balloon. it was filled with a lot of lighter than reality air that made you float but there wasn't anything in the balloon. he was giving a whole litany of things he was going to do, if you couldn't do it now, why couldn't you do it on last four years. it was empty. people on the left were critiquing it that way. heather: not a lot of facts to back up a lot of language to talk about moving forward. >> to reach out and say i will create a million manufacturing jobs? really? go ahead. pull a rabbit out of your head. make mosquitoes where they don't bite. make it where a woman with a size 11-foot gets to wear a size five shoe. let's go ahead and do all the great things. but that is the problem with the speech last night. he didn't say, here's where we are, here's how we got there but here's how we're going to fix it and by the way i didn't do this way before because i
-election. michelle obama did as bill clinton and former michigan governor, jennifer granholm. this president is using socialist euphemisms, fair share, fair shot, dividing america, not using hope and change rhetoric he was so powerful for using four years before and able to get elected by such a wide march begin then. this is frustrating true believers the dowds of the left really are. whatever they may have felt four years ago they have been backing this president up every turn. >> she was never a true wleefr. martha: let me interject here. in the ericson piece written by one of his reporters at red state he talks about whether or not the president is relevant. goes to issues showing up in this maureen dowd piece which is whether or not he was one making the change that he was seeking. and when you look at bob woodward's book it gives a couple of examples that time nancy pelosi was talking to him about the budget. according to woodward's reporting she put the president on mute so that the people in the room could continue their conversation while he was espousing something. she says that is not true
pictures were published of the wife of president obama. i think michelle obama would take a different view about pictures of her topless than she might about someone on a beach in miami. i think that's the key difference. >> well, some might argue and probably very few, but some might argue that even if you're in a private home, is it ever wise to go outside of that home and take your top off? >> i don't think anyone would disagree with that. i have worked for celebrity clients for over 20 years. if any celebrity client came to me and asked me whether it was ever wise to take their top off in a public place anywhere, i would say absolutely not. so i think kate, the duchess of cambridge was unwise to do that. i think, however, that the punishment is inappropriate. it does not seem to me that justifies a worldwide set of pictures on the basis of and moments in discretion where she thought she was safe and where she thought she was private. >> well, it just comes on the heels of the prince harry scandal and the nude pictures taken of him in a private hotel room. >> well, i think this is absol

have the democratic convention. spectacular performances by michelle obama and bill clinton. president obama got less stellar reviews, but still a solid speech. the totality of that message, when you had romney, his goal was to make people like him better. obama was to try to address the sense of disappointment many people have. from these initial numbers, they could fade back, it looks like he's done that. at least a little bit. >> john, both of these polls were done after the jobs report on friday? >> reporter: the gallup poll, melissa, is a seven-day tracking poll. so it had results from s days. only friday and saturday in that poll was after the jobs report. the rasmussen poll is a three-day tracking poll. so it's numbers included sunday, saturday and friday. so, yes, the rasmussen poll included the jobs report numbers. >> that is the one that showed obama in the lead. all right, john. thank you very much for that. appreciate it. >>> teachers in chicago are on strike today in the city's first school shutdown in 25 years. mayor rahm emanuel saying he will push to end the strike quic

congresswoman michele bachmann. you were very critical of president obama's actions in libya back when the revolution was going on. let's talk to that. how do you feel he's handled the aftermath relative to concerns a year ago. >> i did, because i said unequivocally, that it was wrong for barack obama to go in. and he unilaterally took the united states forces and bombing libya. we had gaddafi, no one loves gaddafi, no ot a great guy, but fairly neutral and working on issuings. the problem, we knew we had a lot of al-qaeda in libya, an and lot of people in eastern libya were recruited to kill our troops in iraq. so if you depose gaddafi, the question, who is next, who will take over? that's the problem that we're seg this week in libya. who taking over? it's complete lawlessness and a break down in society and also, a lot of weapons that went missing, when gaddafi was deposed and a lot of those weapons are now across the middle east and could be used against the united states. >> one of the people who was killed, shaun smith, indicated in an online post that he put out just hours befor
